Let’s come together to share a meal with your friends and Canadian athletes at your home.
Every Pre-Game Meal is a rare opportunity for an evening of extraordinary conversations, a chance to hear what it takes to be the best in the world and to surround yourself with excellence.
Pre-Game Meal (Toronto) hosted by: Jayna Hefford (Hockey), Korey Jarvis (Wrestling) and Crystal Emmanuel (Athletics)
Host a CAN Fund Pre-Game Meal
Deliciously reinventing the charity dinner! The money you raise at your CAN Fund Pre-Game Meal will support athletes at the most critical time of their journey as they enter their final push to qualify to represent Canada at the Games next summer and then the Winter Games in 2022.
It’s easy to become a host!
Get started by filling out your host form, from there, CAN Fund will create your SAVE THE DATE for you to e-mail to your guests. You have the option to also create a host fundraising page, where your guests can donate to your Pre-Game Meal and support Canadian athletes.
Set a fundraising goal that you would like to achieve for your Pre-Game Meal. Your guests can donate online directly to your event page so you can track your goal. Each donation to CAN Fund is an opportunity to share in the excitement of supporting an athlete who is training to wear the Maple Leaf on the world stage. A tax receipt will be issued for every donation, and CAN Fund will share the name and story of the athlete(s) you are supporting.
A reason to celebrate
Our Canadian athletes bring an entire country together, and now you can bring them to your home. You will have the opportunity to hear firsthand their stories, the obstacles they have overcome to wear the maple leaf, the things they are most proud of and the parts of their journey that rarely get told, is truly a one of a kind experience. CAN Fund has athletes across Canada who are excited to attend.
